This is a mail I got that I want to share with you.

THE PRAYER THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD

When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:
"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. 
We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good", but that is exactly what we have done.  We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have shot anti-abortionists and called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and P*rn*gr*phy and called it
            freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it
            enlightenment.

Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin
            and  set us free.  Amen!"

The response was immediate.  A number of legislators walked out during the
prayer in protest.

In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor,
logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding
negatively.

The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer
from India , Africa and Korea .

Thank you for sharing. It is heartening to hear of some who are not afraid to speak up.
